J Street Cancels Anti-Israel "Poetry" Slam

Weekly Standard reports:

Last week we noted the appearance of "poet" Josh Healey on the list of speakers for J Street's conference next week. We also posted the video of Healey performing his poem "Queer Intifada," which declares that "Guantanamo is Auschwitz" and "Anne Frank is Matthew Shepard." Healey authored another poem in which he said that Jews were "chosen to recreate our own history," but now "we're the ones writing numbers on the wrists of babies born in the ghetto called Gaza." Suddenly, Healey's name is no longer on the list of speakers at the J Street conference -- disappeared without a trace like the ten members of Congress who dropped off the list of host committee sponsors. And Healey's not the only one who's been disappeared. Kevin Coval and Tracy Soren, the two panelists who were to join him for a session on "culture as a tool for change" have also been dropped from the speakers list.

So an encore performance of Queer Intifada for General Jim Jones -- who apparently won't get to hear it performed live when he gives the keynote speech at J Street's anti-Israel bash next week.
